There are so many things that go into making a decision to purchase real-estate. Whether someone is purchasing their first home, or leasing office space for their company, many decisions are made concerning price, terms, and other matters. Unseen, potentially huge problems may lurk around a property. Not many people consider the possibility of a pest control problem waiting for them.
Individuals often forget to consider the potential of a rat issue or termite infestation. These pests can provide a much larger problem than a leaky roof or some warped siding. Wood eating insect infestations are only discovered during a professional inspection. They are very difficult to see and such an infestation will usually be missed by the untrained eye. Wood destroying insects cost property owners hundreds of millions of dollars per year. A large portion of the time, those costs could have been avoided by the property owner or lessee by simply having had a pest control inspection.
Small wood eating insects are common but not the only serious problem to be faced. Small critters like mice, rats, squirrels or raccoons can play havoc in attic spaces or inside walls. Such small animals are known to burrow into homes and other comfortable spaces and attempt to make the space their own. That means that not only do these animals look to “reside” inside your property, they also will look to eat, reproduce, and literally make the property their own. For these reasons, these types of pests can be a challenge to get rid of once they have made themselves at home. Often times, once animals have been removed they attempt to come back in or find alternative places to enter a property. This is not a problem that you want to have when settling into a new home or office space.
The bottom line is this. Whether dealing with termites, rats, mice, ants, bedbugs, or any other nasty critters, pest problems can be an extreme nuisance and can be expensive to deal with if not controlled as soon as pest activity is noticed. So, the next time you are looking at purchasing real estate or leasing, make sure to include a GoPro Pest Control inspection as part of the transaction. You may very well save yourself a ton of money and aggravation!
